Food Grade Buckets
"Do you want to store food (or prepare for the apocalypse?) We can help with that. Food grade buckets are FDA-approved food grade containers. They're made with low melt high-density polyethylene HDPE food grade plastic. This process makes the best quality buckets for food safe storage and impact strength. Food storage buckets are constructed with reinforced rim rings to prevent pail distortion. Storage bucket walls are uniformly thick for optimum stacking strength. The tapered design allows for easy separation and maximum storage. Proudly made in the USA, these food grade containers are BPA free.
In a small space you can store a lot of food with a very long shelf life and you can reuse the buckets as many times as you want. For food storage you must have an air tight seal which is especially important if you are not planning on using Mylar bags. Our gamma lid creates an airtight seal for the 5 and 2.5 gallon food grade buckets. When using a plastic bucket with snap-on lid for long-term food storage, seal your food in aittight bags before storing with the lid on.
These buckets are also solvent resistant and safe to use with home and industry chemicals like paint, varnishes, concrete, sealants, and asphalt coatings. When you're done for the work day simply seal with a snap-on lid. It's important to remember that when you put a chemical into HDPE plastic it will absorb the chemical which will leach into any food you place in the bucket later. Always store food in new food grade buckets." You may have your heart set on a metal bucket: the only metal recommended for food is stainless steel.
